Caseal Cashel – Exterior (and crows)

My last post ended with me talking about how green it was in Ireland. Now let me continue…

It was so effing green.

Anyway, back to Caseal Cashel. The origin behind one of its names, St. Patrick’s Rock, came from local legend that claims that the rock on which the castle stands on “formed when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave in a mountain located within 30 km of Cashel. The furious demon bit off a piece of the mountain but he had to spit it out because of his broken tooth – this was how a mysterious limestone hill appeared in the flatland of Tipperary.”

So there you have. Fun little background story. Now look at how green it is over there. Look at it!
